Given Samsung's recent update history on its Galaxy S and Galaxy S 2 models, I'd say about 9 months. So look for it March 2013.

It's not too bad, it's only about the length of a human pregnancy. It is "designed for humans" after all.

Or - dear Commentator - you can grab a 4.1 Custom Rom as soon as one of the XDA guys begins working on it. Which is pretty soon, I say, given past events.

YES I will have it too. God bless root! I won't have Verizon or no carrier tell me when I can have Android 4.1 Jellybean.

Just like I have had S-Vioce for weeks the same will be for the next Android update!

You all know why it won't happen soon. The nexus phones are bare bones android gs 2 and gs3 are covered over with touchwiz and other carrier apps

Nope and if you don't understand text lingo you must not know anything about a cell phone.. so "wtf" are you doing on this site?

This site isn't about how people talk on a device, it's about the devices themselves. And we like to type like normal humans with correct spelling, and no text talk such as lol, wtf, and smh. Come on, I'm 15, and I never type like that. I might say lol on occasion when texting, but sometimes I actually say "Haha" instead. I might not always use correct punctuation, but at least I spell my words out. Just because you're on a site that talks about phones, doesn't mean you can comment on it like you're on one. And even so, you should probably get out of the habit on text talk, it gets annoying after a while.

We = everyone who comments on this site, or at least most of us like to use correct grammar and spelling. There wasn't really any need to call me and everyone else who uses correct grammar a retard.

Where have you seen such comment? I know you're kinda frustrated and pissed that WP8 wasn't able to catch up on ICS and now, with Jellybean coming next, widens the gap but seriously, go troll elsewhere!

Actually, WP8 seem to be as closed as WP7.

The only time an Android fan has ever said 'It's revolutionary!' is when they were mocking Apple. Though that is a bit childish (and getting quite old).

I have not seen such comment yet.

"Oh man give me a break duh.."
Why bother trolling then?

While we get slow revolutionary updates, you never get anything revolutionary. Siri was bought off by Apple. They didnt even create Siri and that was the main sellpoint for the 4s.

Android has had voice assist since launch... Hell, some feature phones had it before IOS and Android existed. While not as enhanced as Siri, I do not know how Apple was able to buy a patent and sue people trying to "claim" they copied their idea. When it was never their idea and was created long ago...

Kinda like their 3d mapping. I have had that since my old Incredible and maybe even previous phone had it too. Someone person said it isnt as detailed in a previous post... More detailed than StreetView? Like if you were driving down that street? I doubt Apple will be able to match StreetView, but we will see... Maybe 3 or 4 phones later and theyll call it revolutionary just like they are taking credit for 3d mapping.

Thank God I bought GSM Nexus 2 months ago. Finally will have a first chance to taste Jellybean compares to other Non-Nexus users.

I don't know why you're thanking god. You probably bought it with your own money.

I hope Mountain View has got a few tricks up their sleeve with JB, or else it will be a very tough battle against the upcoming Windows tablets. Cupertino needs to perform big with the next iPhone too, considering iOS 6 didn't make too big a splash.

Let's see:

iPad 3: incremental upgrade.

iOS 6: incremental upgrades.

iPHone 5: ????

You guessed it. Incremental upgrades.
